Quote for the Weekend

"If you can imaginatively enter into another person's life, you cannot hate and wound that person. You know what it is like to be them. They are not Other. They are the Same. Art allows that imaginative connection with people and situations outside our own. Art gives us more than mental understanding or generalised sympathy - it shows us another's pain, another's struggle. It joins life together where hatred would sever it."-- Jeannette Winterson
